ANC carrying charges and Casa Blanca

Casablanca, of course the best movie ever made (circa 1942), remains an iconic classic for script, dialogue and one liners.
Starring Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman, Casablanca won three Oscars, including best film. It is the story of a doomed romance set against the backdrop of the early stages of World War Two.
It is probably best remembered for its quotable quotes:
“Here’s looking at you, kid.”
“We’ll always have Paris.”
“Round up the usual suspects.”
“Of all the gin joints in all the towns in all the world, she walks into mine.”
“Play it again, Sam. For old times’ sake.”
“Not an easy day to forget. I remember every detail. The Germans wore gray, you wore blue.”
“Where were you last night?” “That’s so long ago, I don’t remember.”
“Will I see you tonight?” “I never make plans that far ahead.”
Rick (Bogart) visits the”Blue Parrot” and complains to Signor Ferrari (Sydney Greenstreet) that his shipment from Ferrari is always a bit short. The tart retort:
“Carrying charges, my boy, carrying charges.”
In South Africa, the ANC’s notion of carrying charges is to carry off the lot.
Most tax revenue taken from hard working South Africans end up funding corruption, pay interest on sovereign debt incurred to fund ANC graft, pay grants to the”dead” and foreigners and handsomely reward either titled and entitled or absent public servants, a misnomer for a bloated bureaucracy that by and large has yet to discover the true meaning of service to the public.
The only solution is to vote for a Parliament that significantly reduces personal, company, dividend and death taxes and for City Councils/ municipalities that reduce property rates and taxes.
The ANC, or whatever party or parties run the government should have much less in the kitty (fiscus) to distribute to party hacks, cadres, cronies and assorted floozies.
South Africans should befriend lower taxes. Embrace it. Vote for it.
Less taxes. Less government. More private enterprise.
Less opportunity for corruption, graft, looting and theft.
In the last line of Casablanca, Rick says to the delightful French Chief of police, captain Renault (Claude Rains):
“I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship.”
